I have been keeping very busy since my last letter. At the end of May we had Pentecost break, which was two weeks off of school! My current host family and I took a train to Hamburg and Berlin. We went on many tours, and saw the Pergamon Museum and the Brandenburger Gate just to name a few. We had an awesome time in both cities!
From May 30 to June 14, my family was in Germany to visit me. It was so good to see them in person again! We did a lot of things. We saw Crailsheim, spent a day with each of my host families, and a day with David Etzel (the new Crailsheim student I’ll be bringing home with me) and his family. My sister and brother were able to go to school with me a couple of days. Yes, they rode bikes to school! We went to an arena to watch the first Germany soccer game in the World Cup competition. We traveled around Germany visiting Nürnberg, Stuttgart, Munich, Dachau Concentration Camp, Neuschwanstein Castle and Rothenburg. It was so nice to have my family here; they had a wonderful vacation in Germany! It was definitely hard to see them go again at the airport, but I’ll be back home soon.
From June 19–22, I went on my class trip to Berlin. This time I saw the Sanssouci Castle, the Reichstag Museum (the seat of the German Parliament) and the Blue Man Group. It was a fun four days!
My time is counting down here in Germany and I can’t even imagine having to say goodbye to this place. It’s just too awesome here!
